History of the Royal Regiment of Artillery

An excellent set of books were (and are still being) published covering the history of the Gunners from WW1 through to the mid 50s. They also cover Indian, Australian, NZ and Canadian Army units along with some others. They are all published under the auspices of the Royal Artillery Institution in the History of the Royal Regiment of Artillery series.

They are very useful books for those researching their ancestors or Battery history.

See also An ancestor in The Royal Artillery you say? for other information on this.
